Well we'll have to wait for subs but just going by what I saw ...

Oh, and they still won't clarify what a wish can do, nor if it can revive Mami.
Doesn't look like it though it seems (from my very basic japanese knowledge) the first question Madoka asked Homura is "why didn't you tell us anything before"...

The "anything" refered to the whole soul gem thing. Homura answered she kept quiet because no one ever believed her. By the way, Kyubey stated Mami never noticed the true purpose of the soul gem. Had she known, maybe she wouldn't have tried to recruit Madoka and Sayaka.

Well, Sayaka broke and Madoka actually managed to keep her sanity and can still function. This episode is an Aesop in many ways... should we recount monkey's paw?

It was only a matter of time before Gen decided to break someone. Too bad it happened to be Sayaka. Madoka actually kept her shit together farther and stronger than I though she could. QB on his part is slowly pushing his way from Lawful Neutral to Lawful Evil.

More comments when I see subs.

As for the last scene it was maybe my favorite "artsy" animation so far in the show,and the whole scene was quite disturbing,I have a feeling it will be even more disturbing with subs.

Heh, thought so. Kyoko is much like Nao, especially since Word of God description for Kyoko and Nao is virtually identical. Both use their power the way they want to. Nao's backstory had something tragic happen to someone she was close to, so we'll see if something similar happened to Kyoko.

Spoiler for ep7:
Heh, 3 out 4 ain't bad (since they didn't address wish systems and a potential Mami revival). But this is intriguing, as I would have bet Madoka going a bit nuts, but then again, Sayaka is the MG. It's tough to avoid commenting too much until I see the subs (since I've been led astray as to exact meanings and events before by people who related the raws), but this almost sounds a bit too out of character for her. While my prediction was probably a bit too idealistic, I wouldn't have expected her to go "psycho."

I'll have to wait for the subs, though, to properly judge.

Edit: For those curious, I'll comment a bit on Kyube. First off, his face is always like that; a perpetual smile like a stuffed animal. It's just his eyes are closed. I've learned not to evaluate him based on facial expressions by this point.

However, IF he is mentally torturing her for no good reason, then I'll at least agree that is pretty dickish. But as I said before, I need to watch the subs to get the full context. Just getting this out there to let people know about the potential for my mind changing, since some didn't believe me.

A big part of the reason why I've defended Kyubey is the notable lack of any (obvious) sadism on his part through the first six episodes.

Now, if that has changed in Episode 7, then yes, that's a pretty big change, and would make him seem much more likely to be genuinely evil.

Like Kaijo, I'll have to wait until the sub is out before I say more on that particular topic, though.

Mentally? Try physically. He wanted to prove to her the pain she felt in her fight against Kyoko is nothing compared to real pain, so he put his paw on her soul gem to give her a taste of true pain. I'd like to add this little torture lasted more than necessary.

The reason he did that was to demonstrate the usefulness of the soul gem. Thanks to it, magical girl can keep fighting even after getting injured. They're perfect little soldiers.

Aaaaah, now that's my Urobuchi Gen ^_^

I had speculated after ep3 that Sayaka would contract for him, wishing for his recovery (check), that her true wish would be to gain his love (check), but that this wouldn't work out (check), and that he would most likely reject her (tentative that's-gonna-happen-check). Simply based on the experience that our beloved screenwriter likes to go for the worst-case scenario and wouldn't merely try to kill you, but twist the knife a bit before that. But I forgot that he's even meaner than what normal people can come up with. Having the love of her life taken away by Sayaka's own FRIEND is perfectly logical, yet even nastier.

Anyway, this is another demonstration how Urobuchi Gen's mind operates. He is _very_ careful to design a logical storyline progression, and he's absolutely ruthless in picking the worst-case scenario within these limits. Consequently, I'm really pretty convinced that Sayaka isn't merely going to die or something. She'll also not merely turn into an antagonist. Come up with about the worst and saddest thing you could imagine, then you're on the right track. The worst I can come up with is "turning into a witch".

So, download completed, off to watch

Wait wait wait, from what I can tell Hitomi simply said she liked him and that's it. What's the big deal, so they like the same guy, that doesn't mean Sayaka and Kamijou can't be together.

Hitomi told her she'd confess to Kamijou tomorrow. She advised Sayaka to make a move before then so that she won't have any regret. From my understanding, Hitomi has had feelings for Kamijou for a while, yet she didn't do anything and even tried to forget about him out of consideration for Sayaka. However, she's grown tired of waiting and lying to herself, so now basically, she's telling Sayaka that if she doesn't freaking make her mind up already, she'll take him.

The only reason she's giving Sayaka an advance notice is that she's known Kamijou for longer than her. She feels it's only right for Sayaka to confess first. If she doesn't, then it's her loss. She's been warned, so she can't complain if Hitomi "steals" Kamijo.

Interesting. From how you put it, he once again did something logical, but that is hard to handle emotionally, demonstrating once again that he doesn't quite understand the girls he's contracting. Although it almost sounds a version of slapping a girl who is overreacting, so that might be one way of looking at it.

Shhh! Don't bring logic into this! People have their own little worlds already created, and you risk bringing those crashing down around their heads with your "reason" and "facts."

Although this does seem a bit out of left field, with a revelation that Hitomi has like Kamijou. If so, why wasn't she visiting him in the hospital, too? Seems like a bit of an ass-pull, just to torture Sayaka. What's next? She just happens to come home and find out a thief broke in and murdered her family?

That's so much confidence from her, it's like she knows she'll get him. The question now is did Sayaka friend zone herself with all that hospital visiting?

I'd call it the writing on the wall. It would come as a total shock to me if Sayaka would be able to snatch Kamijo from Hitomi. Yes, it hasn't happened _yet_, but I'm 99% sure it will.

She did sound very confident, but I think she was warning her just in case.
